68% of families living in Northern Canada live with food insecurity, without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. We see this as a systemic issue, a product of how food is grown, supplied and transported to Canada’s North.
Growing North’s mission is to sustainably provide fresh, locally grown produce to families living in Northern Canada, at a fraction of the current price, while positively contributing to the educational infrastructure and job market.
The geodesic greenhouse is designed to withstand the harsh wind and weather conditions of the north.
We work directly alongside the community to tailor our programming to their individual needs.
Growing North hires and trains local greenhouse managers to ensure that the communities are sustainable long-term.
